Institutional Advancement

The Department of Institutional Advancement consists of the offices of Admissions, Marketing and Communications, and Development.

The Department of Institutional Advancement furthers the mission of Sacred Heart education by:

  • introducing new individuals to the school and inviting prospective families to join the Sacred Heart community,
  • cultivating friends and building strong meaningful relationships that enhance the community and contribute positively to school culture, and
